BIRT - the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust helps people regain the skills lost as a result of brain injury - whether caused by road accident, assault, stroke or illness.
Their involvement may begin once someone with an acquired brain injury leaves hospital and is medically stable.
They offer a range of services designed to meet the needs of people at different stages of rehabilitation - from assessment to comprehensive rehabilitation, long-term housing and care, and community-based support.
They currently offer rehabilitation services to around 550 service users. All their programmes follow a neurobehavioural approach.
Their clinical expertise, combined with excellent facilities and a dedication to care, gives each individual the best possible chance of rehabilitation following an acquired brain injury.
Demand for their services is growing fast and they are developing new services to make a difference to the lives of even more people.
BIRT is a division of The Disabilities Trust and is the means by which The Disabilities Trust provides its brain injury services.
The Disabilities Trust is a charitable organisation which provides services to people with physical disability, learning disability and autism as well as brain injury.
